How isn't this racist?

This is extremely racist, and completely uncalled for. I will caution though that I know many, many Republicans, none of whom are racist. I would hate for people to get sucked into the trap of ripping the whole group based on the actions of a super-minority. That kind of thinking is what lead to this trash in the first place.

Stop being so sensitive. Black comics make a living off of those stereotypes and other "racism." If the "racism" isn't hurting anyone (which I wouldn't call racism) in any way why does it matter? I have never seen anyone flip out over old jokes. McCain can't help being old just as much as Obama can't help being black.

but you said something in particular, "COMICS". We expect that from them. Not our political groups and such.

The difference is intent. I personally have no problem with racism when it is done in a light-hearted way, whether it is done against my race or not. When it is done with the intention to belittle someone, or incite feelings of scorn or anger, then I have a problem with it. This instance is the latter.

"The use of watermelon, ribs and fried chicken was innocent," she said. "Everyone eats those foods, it's not a racial thing."

Don't piss on my head and tell me that it's raining, lady. <_< That's pretty dang racist.

Everyone eats those foods, yes, but to specifically single out THOSE particular food items is highly suspicious. Why not use a hotdog, or an apple or an apple pie?

I've said this before, even though I hate Obama's policies and I wasn't considering voting for him before, but its **** like this from ignorant people like those that will make me change my vote just to teach them a lesson by putting that muthaflucka in office. Socialist or not, this country needs to face racism, ignorance and prejudice face-to-face once and for all.

Well said.

Some people think it's not racist, while others do. I guess we should all agree to disagree on that matter. However, you do have to ask yourself if anyone would have put John Kerry's face on there four years ago.

There are areas that you just can't touch. It doesn't matter if a joke you tell doesn't offend you; it just had better not offend the people you want to communicate with and persuade. If you want blacks or others to vote for McCain, you can't do anything that could be perceived as racist. This group only helped their enemy win the game.
